Thanks for the support.
I agree that they should run some kind of "Buy 1 Get 1" on this, but the powers that be don't seem to be offering.

Basically, both replacements done in 2007 used a prosthetic that relied on the bone growth to hold them in place. Unfortunately, that didn't work too well. Th revisions use a screw the hold the socket in place. Since the right hip was revised back in March, it is doing great. Now the left one needs the same type of revision. I am not too happy with this outcome, but I don't believe the doctor did anything wrong. Ultimately, I think there was a some kind of compatibility issues between the prosthetic and my body.
